I know what you're thinking. And I love you too.Oh wait. that's not what you were thinking? Well, one can dream. (And I still love you.)
Especially if you took that survey way back when. Your responses were overwhelmingly helpful! So overwhelming that I went comatose for a bit. See blogs are always so hungry, and sometimes a gal is just too tired to cook every night.
Then I woke up.
|Yeah, you. Fact.|
If you're gracious enough to still be reading (thank you thank you thank you) here's the plan...
- NOT attempt to write Mastering the Art of French Cooking... for Mennonites (at this point).
- Peel away pieces and stick them in the "To Do In My Lifetime" file.
- Choose one piece and stick it in the "To Do This Year" file.
- The answer, that one piece I breathed a lot to get to, is... PASTRY! Mennonite baked goods galore shall be the aim.

That last one is Sofie drawing a name from Zeke's (my nephew) fireman's hat. A very dear reader who took the survey was in fact chosen that day. And then promptly elected A Girl and Her Pig by April Bloomfield.
Then I got all caught up in that breathing thing, a niece doing spectacular things like growing fingernails, a sister getting married, another doing amazing artwork (see below) a few lovely east coast excursions, and of course some kitchen work with the creatives at Two Boroughs Larder.
With that... I'm back and I'll see you quite soon!
|That's my sister getting married. That's me singing Business Time in my head to keep from weeping.|
